Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a contemporary freestyle martial art. A combat sport and a self defence system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art. It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person.
BJJ training is used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi). Also used by mixed martial arts (MMA and UFC) competitions. Sparring (commonly referred as "rolling") and a major role in training. Fighting performance especially in competition, is related to progress through its ranking system.
